Story
This is my cat Nubby, he is 3 years old. Due to my family’s financial situation we can no longer keep him or his brother Flaco. Nubby came with a nub for a tail, we think he was born like that. He likes to cuddle and is very unbothered by children, it might take a bit for him to warm up to you or let you hold him. A little chunky but not too bad. He gets zoomies often but it’s not too bad, he also has a history of a UTI that occurred 2 years ago due to stress when me and my family went on vacation for two weeks. Overall he’s very chill, tolerates other cats and dogs but may be hostile at first.

Story
Hello if you're looking for a cool guy you've found him. Niko is very reserved and laid back he likes to snuggle on his terms and he loves his snacks. I think I've spoiled him he loves climbing on his tower and just chilling in his own space and playing with his toys. Anyone would love to have him and I'm heartbroken that I can't keep him.

Ace knows his name so please cont change it. Ace is hyper active & loves to play. He knows how to play fetch very well & gets along wonderful with children & other cats. He’s Uber affectionate & loves cuddles & rubs. He’s very active sound wise & with exercise. He’s absolutely the sweetest & most lovable cat you’ll ever meet. He isn’t neutered & we haven’t taken him to get shots in over 2 years. He’s never been sick since we’ve had him. His litter is fresh step!

Story
I am currently in foster, and I am available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting me, you can email the foster team at fosterpgpets@co.pg.md.us.I have gorgeous light green eyes, a super sweet face, and a bodacious lush tail. I am very timid at first but if you scratch my ears and chin you will unlock the key to my heart. I purr quickly and enjoy pets and being held a little once I’m comfortable with you. I’m a super special kind of cat called a tripod cat, which means I have only three legs (missing back right leg). This doesn`t affect my health or quality of life, nor do I require any special care. I can get around well, enjoy playing with toys like balls, and am awesome with my litter box. I really enjoy napping near my person and looking out the window, can easily get up a ramp with some traction (my foster mama made one from a board and rug lying around, easy!), and get up and down stairs, but I won’t be jumping on your counter or furniture. There are other cats in my foster home and we`re cool with each other so I`d do well in a house with other cats if they`ll accept a new friend.
